WASHINGTON, December 9. /TASS/. The US Senate voted on a bill to make provisions of the so-called Magnitsky Act applicable to other states.
The document is yet to be signed by US President Barack Obama.
The Sergey Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act was adopted in December 2012 and was initially directed against the persons the US authorities believe are responsible for the death of Hermitage Capital lawyer Sergey Magnitsky in Russia. It was later expanded to include Russian individuals whom the US suspects of human rights violations.
In early 2015 US Senator Ben Cardin put forward a bill to make the Magnitsky Act applicable to individuals worldwide. Those on the list will be unable to get a US visa, and their property and bank accounts in the United States will be frozen.
